Crossing Boundaries: Teenage Pregnancy and Success

For my English project, I interviewed my grandmother, who had my mother at the age of 16 and came out a successful seamstress and professor. I learned that nothing is impossible with determination, focus, and a positive outlook. Lastly, the priorities you have as a teenager will be insignificant when you are older so you should not make life changing decisions now when you are young and not wise enough to handle the outcome.

My Love Note: 


I have passion for recognizing where the boiling belly full of love is, 

You have the burnt remains of what used to hold everything beautiful,

You've been my cradle since birth, 

Somewhere that I can always call home, 

All space in your boiling belly for a black girl in need of home, 

Always leaving room for me even after all the struggles people stomp into your skin of soot. 

You are very much appreciated here. 

You are beautiful, 

Home too all the hurting brown boys wearing bullet proof skin, 

And the girls who can't find their way out of the maze in those boys minds, 

You've been my mother my entire life, 

Your street lights always my guide back to broken beauty,

You, 

West Philly always has room, 

Even with the over population of poverty, 

I try to save you with poetry, 

There is always room, 

You are nothing but a beautifully broken mother birthing boiling belly flu of love.

Crossing Boundaries Podcast

My project is about crossing boundaries. I interviewed my mother on this topic. When we talked it ended up being about how the past affects her, the differences between old school & new school, and the issues of people young and old. It was all about her insight, views, and experiences with things through her own eyes.

Crossing Boundaries Podcast

This is an interview between my aunt Adrienne and I, on how she overcame times in her life when people told her no, she turned right around and proved them wrong. She told them yes. This is about her having her biggest weakness thrown at her and taking it and "slaying the dragon". 
“Fairy tales are more than true: not because they tell us that dragons exist, but because they tell us that dragons can be beaten.”

Crossing Boundaries: Pregnancy

This interview is about my mom and cousin talking about what happened when they got pregnant before they was married and how this could be crossing boundaries with their religion. We also had some deep emotion in this interview because not only did it effect their religious life but also their social life.
